Ain’t Nothing Uglier Than Gossip and Backbiting

By Saad Zafar I have discovered a new distaste for gossip and backbiting. Actually, it’s not so much a “new” distaste rather than a rediscovered distaste for it whilst accompanied with the realization that I have — for so long — unwittingly engaged in such a distasteful practice all the while assuming that my partaking in it is merely harmless fun and not hurtful in the slightest. It is only […]

Because ALL One Needs is Music – Todd Haynes’ I’m Not There

By Brikena Ribaj I don’t think one chooses music. I truly believe it chooses one. I was asked recently why I’m such a fan of indie music. I remember saying something like, ‘well, I suppose I was born that way. Or something. It’s one of those truths, you know? You just know it. Sort of like knowing your name, you just do, you know?’ The awkward-sounding answer made full sense […]

Pet Shop Boys and Nietsche?!?!

By Brikena Ribaj I often refer to the music-loving Socrates as Nietzsche portrays him in his work Birth of Tragedy. Music is the best form of language, per Socrates. And I concur fully not just because it is Socrates’ attitude per Nietzsche but because I happen to share the same attitude experientially. So, those who get mad over not getting showered with attention when music is playing an active part […]

Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation

By Brikena Ribaj Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation (2003) is another good Fall title for me. It takes place in Tokyo and the most relatable bits in the film are Charlotte and Bob, the two main characters, exploring the busy, urban streets of Tokyo together, thus sharing their isolated togetherness and bonding in a place where the leading currency is utter linguistic unfamiliarity and unequivocal confusion.
